Wes Peterson Jr. Prepares for Life Under the National Microscope – DMV Preps Says He’s Ready

Information nationwide is flooding in with respect to the 2016 group of reclassified players in multiple grades.  The extra year has benefited players across the country creating opportunities at the High School level, impacted the national rankings significantly all the way to through high school, and allowed certain players to share in experiences that many otherwise would not have had an chance to participate in. 

Wes Peterson Jr. fits this mold announcing his reclassification to the class of the 2021; the 6’2 Guard who will be attending Immanuel Christian had a breakout season in the UA Proving Ground league where he averaged 18ppg.  Along with his physical maturation Peterson’s confidence has grown which means trouble for his new classmates moving forward.

His inclusion in the class of 2021 will also impact the national landscape placing him not only in the conversation as one of the top players in the country but has paid immediate dividends with Peterson's name being added the upcoming 2016 Middle School All-American Game roster; the event is to be held in Washington, DC at St. John College High School on August 26th.  High School Coaches can place Peterson’s name at the top of their boards for next year’s 8th graders and the country can begin to expect more of the footage we have obtained below as he ascends the national rankings.

The Big Dog is off the Leash Terrance Williams out West Catching Bodies

Those who reside in the DMV have grown to watch 2020 Gonzaga bound Terrance Williams grow and develop over the course of many years.  Many have questioned over the course of time Williams ability to transition to the wing position; some even openly doubted.

Locally forced to play more of a back to the basket high/low post style the substance in Williams game and his hard work and continued development has been lost somewhat nationally.  His team has performed as one of the best in the country but we have not seen the prolific play that propelled him to the top of the national rankings in his class.

Until now; in similar fashion as his appearance last season with the legendary “Terror Squad” Williams went Bi-Coastal suiting up and for the West Coast All-Stars which finally let the world see what Williams has been spending hours in the gym creating.  He unleashed with a fury unknown to mankind, taking bodies, catching bodies, and returning to the form that the DMV and world has wanted to see for a very long time – call him “Prego” ‘cause dammit it’s in there!
There is fine line between creating success for someone else and doing so for oneself – this past weekend Williams "did him" (which every KID should have the right to do) at the highest level; we dare someone to watch the clips below and say differently.

DMV’s Best & Brightest Make High School Selections - CLASS OF 2020

Each year it brings DMV Preps great joy to watch area player and parents go through the recruiting process and enjoy the proverbial fruits of their labor by realizing and accepting an invitation to the high of their choice.  Again this year the elite level player has by a large majority selected to attend private institutions with the WCAC and MIAA being the biggest winners.

As we say every year; it’s imperative and provides proper respect and perspective, that success is not only defined on the basketball court but also in the classroom, the programs listed below denote not only high athletics standards, but also academics prowess.  These players were not only selected for their basketball ability but had to go through a battery of test and review that included a review of their academic history and transcripts.  For younger players who dream of playing at some of the institutions listed below; remember that academics always come first.

We celebrate this “middle ground” for many as the ultimate goal is still to be rendered and that is obtaining a free education at the college level.  Whereas this is a tremendous mile stone that we all must pause for and congratulate - the road only get tougher the work harder.  All players must stay in the gym as the game and level of play will continue to become more challenging.     

Many players will develop at the high school level that are not listed below and the inclusion or non-inclusion does not have any guarantee on future success or failure.  In the end all players are winners simply for playing the game.

We annually would like to take the time to indulge those who begrudge player ranking and analysis and once again point to our documented track record.  Using the freshman class of 2018 of the Top 30 players ranked over 70% played and competed on the varsity level as freshmen.  Conversely in the class of 2019 of the Top 30 players ranked 73.3% played and competed on varsity as freshman – again eclipsing the 70% threshold.  Our consistency is a proven commodity in the DMV and we look to forward to continuing to provide high level analysis that have tangible results.  
On behalf of DMV Preps our entire staff wishes to congratulate and wish the best to the entire 8th grade class of 2020 – remembering always that it is never where you start but always where you finish.  Top players keep working and those wishing to reach the top keep working; your biggest dreams will always be within your grasp!
